You didn't say if you tried and what failed?

Install it as per http://www.vmware.com/pdf/server_admin_manual.pdf  page 44.  Don't worry about libdb.so.3.

Then run /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S91httpd.vmware start

Then from a browser http://server-ip:8222

Log in as admin or as root to configure.

That was the quick and nasty and probably wont survive a reboot.

I think the solution will be something like...

cp /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S91httpd.vmware /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd.vmware   << Maybe not required... wont hurt to try :)

ln -s /etc/rc.d/init.d/e-smith-service /etc/rc7.d/S91httpd.vmware

/sbin/e-smith/db configuration set httpd.vmware service status enabled

/sbin/e-smith/signal-event console-save

/sbin/e-smith/signal-event post-upgrade

/sbin/e-smith/signal-event reboot


I haven't tried the second bit yet... just the quick and nasty.
Regards,
William

IF I give advise.. It's only if it was me....

I may of lied regarding "Don't worry about libdb.so.3. "

I have compat-db.i386 0:4.1.25-9 on my system.. maybe from messing with something else.

You may have to :

yum --enablerepo=base --enablerepo=updates install compat-db

William,
I did not have to install compat-db, everything worked fine, I have my SME setup as server+Gateway so I had to forward TCP ports 8222 and 8223 for external access. I have the web management interface working, I will try to follow your instructions in the second part and let you know how it goes.
Thanks again.

VMserver install Stuck

Got stuck here:

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include] /usr/include

The header files in /usr/include are generally for C libraries, not for the
running kernel. If you do not have kernel header files in your /usr/src
directory, you probably do not have the kernel-source package installed. Are
you sure that /usr/include contains the header files associated with your
running kernel? [no] yes

The directory of kernel headers (version 2.4.20) does not match your running
kernel (version 2.6.9-34.ELsmp).  Even if the module were to compile
successfully, it would not load into the running kernel.

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include]

Could someone please tell me how to get C header files that match my kernel or tell me where mine are located?

Chrisco781 - looks like the latest Yum update includes a new kernel which is probably causing you your grief.

Try...

Code: [Select]
wget http://mirror.pacific.net.au/linux/CentOS/4.3/os/i386/CentOS/RPMS/kernel-smp-devel-2.6.9-34.EL.i686.rpm


then..
Code: [Select]
rpm -Uvh kernel-smp-devel-2.6.9-34.EL.i686.rpm

and look in...
Code: [Select]
/usr/src/kernels/2.6.9-34.EL-smp-i686/include

Looks like I don't have a i686 architecture and still do not have the correct path.

I'm at a loss as to why it wont work.

Do you have dual Celerons ?

From a google search...
Code: [Select]
i386 = Intel 386 and above
i486 = Intel 486 and above
i586 = Pentium and above
i686 = Pentium 2, Pentium 2 Celeron, and above
